Today I'm talk about my proposals to Paraná and Rio Grande do Sul. I choiced to present this two together because I made the same kind of intervention in the two flags.
Let me start showing you the current Paraná Flag:
Being true, it's not a horrible flag, but, I don't know why, people use to complain about this flag. (There's a curious true story about a deputy that proposed to drop the tobacco branch for apologize smoking habit). What I dislike more in the flag is the "PARANÁ" writing and the length of stripes. I know there's a lot of similar proposals, but mine is this:
The stripes was rearranged, and Souther Cross gained its traditional layot. For me, it's good: simple, original and remarkable.
My second proposal, as I said above, is to Rio Grande do Sul. That's current flag:
The coat of arms is terrible (four flags on the exact same flag?), but it's other subject. This flag is incredibly popular in the state; it was the Farroupilha Republic flag with the Farroupilha (current state, too) coat of arms at center. Differently of Juliana Republic, as I said in an older post, the Farroupilha symbols are very respected in the state (I once heard that children learn Farroupilha anthem in school), so I decided to keep the original design, without the coat of arms, but resizing the stripes. The result is that:
I think it's a little disrespect to state pro-autonomist tradition put a star on it, so I keep it without.
It's the penultimate post in Brazil serie, and I'm promising a good surprise to Amazonas post, the last of all.
